April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pmFree
As most IT workers know, certifications are the key to continuously growing your skillset and keeping yourself attuned to the latest in information technology innovations. But anymore, there are so many certification offered by organizations large and small. How are you supposed to know which are worth your time and which can wait until later?
Join this week’s edition of “Be Connected” for a focused discussion on current IT certifications, especially those that can help educational IT staff stay at the top of their game. Participants are encouraged to join in this conversation and offer insights into the certifications they earned, as well as those they’re hoping to achieve in the near-term.
Be Connected is a weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.
Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected!
